Metro takes place roughly a year after the events of Metro For better or worse, the “threat” of the dark ones has been eliminated.
Changed psychologically from his encounter with the alien Dark One's, he has forgotten himself - conflicted between wiping out mankind in the Metro or saving mankind which was his original mandate. He is rather badass, not much of a looker though, but then he is Russian and it possibly doesn't help being exposed to radiation. We never find out what happened to Hunter between the previous novel and this one - we can only guess he was damaged by the Dark One's.
Besides Hunter there are three other important characters in Metro - Homer, who is a old man, he wants to write a history of the previous war and of life within the Metro, he seems to be lacking inspiration.
He shortly isn't lacking in this, as Hunter selects him for a mission. Then there is Sasha, daughter of a former commander of one of the Metro's poleis who was banished. She finds herself attempting to influence and calm down Hunter - a interesting dance going on there. Finally there is Leonid, a sort of musician - the story got weird with him, as he seemed to influence people with his music, very strange. Anyway, Leonid wants to seduce Sasha. He concocts a story about a 'Emerald City' that is just beyond the boundaries of the Metro.
A sort of Atlantis and Great Library in one. This was so terribly written, it just made no place being there, if you want to confuse the reader, you did it there. I always find it amusing when reading Russian fiction, the authors always seem to use a characters full name.
It's rather a quirk I've come to chuckle at instead of groan. Groaning isn't a good thing, what next, apathy? I've not really touched on the story.
Hunter is pissed off, he is a confused mesh of wanting to kill everything and everyone and of saving everyone and everything.
Sasha is his foil, she helps he remember what he was. To a extent Homer also does this. Several scouting parties leave to investigate, but do not return.
Hunter, who disappeared during the events of Metro and is now heavily traumatised, has been working as a border guard at Sevastopolskaya. He volunteers to lead one last attempt to re-establish contact with the central Metro stations before the station mobilises its military and heads north en masse.
He is accompanied by Homer, an old man searching for inspiration for a book.
Hunter makes contact with the guards at Tulskaya Station , but after an argument the hermetic doors are sealed. Hunter tells Homer that the station had been captured by bandits and must be destroyed, but Homer recovers a diary left by one of the previous expeditions which indicates that the station had been infected by deadly disease.
They detour through the abandoned and heavily irradiated Kakhovskaya Line and encounter the teenage daughter of the exiled Avtozavodskaya Station Master, who had recently died. She accompanies them and the increasingly violent Hunter kills several men as they pass through Avtozavodskaya. Sasha restrains him somewhat, preventing additional bloodshed and during a mutant attack at Paveletskaya Station , Hunter is seriously injured after saving Sasha. Sasha believes that she can prevent Hunter from committing further atrocities in his mission to protect Sevastopolskaya, but after an argument Hunter presses on without them.
Homer and Sasha are joined by Leonid, a musician and are re-united with Hunter at Dobryninskaya Station. An increasingly unstable Hunter heads to the centre of the Metro, to Polis, to gather an armed force to cleanse the infected stations. He is accompanied by Homer, while Sasha leaves with Leonid who claims to know a cure for the plague.
The detour was unnecessary and Leonid admits that he did it in order to spend some time with Sasha. He tells her the disease had broken out before in a different section of the Metro and it was found that exposure to radiation could cure it.
He agrees to accompany her in an effort to prevent Hunter from killing everyone there.
Hunter finds his old comrade Miller referred to as 'Melnik' in Metro , the leader of "The Order" — a paramilitary group dedicated to defending the Metro and who believed Hunter dead. Miller provides him with a heavily armed squad and Hunter returns to Dobryninskaya, while Homer wrestles with his conscience as to whether to attempt to stop him or allow the massacre to proceed.
The Order arrives at Tulskaya and prepare to fire at the infected, only to be distracted by Leonid's music. Sasha appeals to Hunter, and tells him of the possible cure. The troops already stationed within Tulskaya, who had been trying to contain the outbreak, detonate explosives that flood the station.
The Order withdraws and seals the hermetic doors, leaving those inside to drown. Several weeks later, both Hunter and Homer are back at the border guard at Sevastopolskaya. Homer had searched for Sasha's body, but was unable to find it, leaving her fate unknown.
